Visual Art Exchange produces SPARKcon as part of its mission to support and provide opportunities for artists and connect the community to the arts. This festival gives an unusual opportunity for the community to be directly involved with a public art project in downtown Raleigh. SPARKcon is unique because it is an event fully created by artists, who are encouraged to use their unique creative talents to create their own programs. SPARKcon was founded in 2006 by Aly and Beth Khalifa.
